What fun your children will have as they learn about saying ìpleaseî and ìthank you,î sharing, technology etiquette, working in groups, table manners, and many other manners-based situations. Each rhyme is filled with movement suggestions to keep your children engaged and active. Plug these cross-curricular rhymes into your daily routine for fun enrichment during gym, science, math, social studies, or language art lessons. Theyíll transform your classroom lessons into live action!
